For Devicesin operational use, it is often necessary to consider the operation state of the software / machine / plant before performing the update (e.g. stop and start the operation). For this case a specialized Clientcan use additional domain-specific Information Modelsas part of the update process.
An update can be performed manually by a user for a single device. However, if a lot of devices need to be maintained on a regular basis an automatic update is desirable. For this scenario the Information Modelalso allows the transfer of software to the devices without starting the update process. For the installation a Clientcould control several devices simultaneously.
